Ryan McCarthy, former vice president of Lockheed Martin‘s F-35 sustainment program, has been confirmed as undersecretary of the U.S. Army.

The Senate voted unanimously Tuesday to confirm McCarthy’s nomination, which was announced by the White House in June, the Army said Thursday.

McCarthy will succeed Karl Schneider and oversee the Army’s budget, business transformation, acquisition modernization and energy-efficiency initiatives.

During his confirmation hearing, McCarthy said he will prioritize Army readiness and capability modernization if confirmed as under secretary.

McCarthy previously served as a staff member at the House Committee on Foreign Affairs and a member of the Army’s 75th Ranger Regiment during the Operation Enduring Freedom in Afghanistan.
